November’s Topic: English Pale Ales

The next RIFT Style Exploration Club Competition (in alignment with the AHA Club-Only Competition) will be on English Pale Ales (BCJP category 8). Therefore, for our upcoming November club meeting, we’ll be doing a style profile on the English Pale Ales as the competition kick-off. This will include reviewing BJCP parameters as well as tasting several commercial examples.

Everyone is invited to take part – all you’ll need to do is brew an Ordinary Bitter, a Special Bitter, or and Extra Special Bitter and have it ready by the club’s tasting night. We’ll judge/taste all the club’s entries during our JANUARY meeting, and the winning beer will be sent onto the national AHA competition to represent RIFT.

More details to follow, but please start planning your EPA brew session.
